: There goes the meanest man that ever took a breath of life. Dill Harris
: Why is he the meanest man? Jem
: Well, for one thing, he has a boy named Boo that he keeps chained to a bed in the house over yonder. Boo only comes out at night when you're asleep and it's pitch-dark. When you wake up at night, you can hear him. Once I heard him scratchin' on our screen door, but he was gone by the time Atticus got there. Dill Harris
: I wonder what he does in there? I wonder what he looks like? Jem
: Well, judgin' from his tracks, he's about six and a half feet tall. He eats raw squirrels and all the cats he can catch. There's a long, jagged scar that runs all the way across his face. His teeth are yella and rotten. His eyes are popped. And he drools most of the time.
: Hey. Jem
: Hey yourself. Dill Harris
: I'm Charles Baker Harris. I can read. I can read anything you've got.

] Dill Harris
: Folks call me Dill. Jem
: How old are you? Four and a half? Dill Harris
: Going on seven. Jem
: Well, no wonder then. Scout's been readin' since she was born, and she's not even six yet. You're mighty puny for nearly seven. Dill Harris
: I'm little but I'm old.
: Let's go down to the courthouse and see the room that they locked Boo up in. My aunt says it's bat-infested, and he nearly died from the mildew. Come on. I bet they got chains and instruments of torture down there.
